I was talking to my nutrition teacher about various whey protein brands -quality and price. She said the best and cheapest whey is non-fat dry milk. I bought a box (Albertson's store brand) which makes 2 gallons for about $6.50. A little cheaper than two gallons of milk. Does anyone on the forum use dry milk as a source of protein?

Not anymore, but sure did years ago. Back then it was much cheaper than regular milk, and we used to toss in the powder with or without regular milk to create a base for our shakes.

You can usually buy whey cheaper than what you paid for the powdered milk. Calculate it out at price/gram of protein. You can buy whey for about 35 cents/20g serving. The equivalent in milk will cost $1. In Canada, where milk costs more due to regulation, whey is even better value. You can probably save money on the skim milk by buying huge bags of it. The price does drop in large quantities.

Even if they are the same price, if you are on a low carb diet, you will want to minimize milk due to the carbs in it. The same 20g protein from will be accompanied by 30g carbs.
